When I got older I understood Frodo (Lord of the Rings)

I was mad at him a long time ago cause I was imature and couldn't understand him. Now reading fanfiction and even putting myself in his shoes I understand why he acted the way he did. Think how hard it must be to be carring something and be tempted to just give in to it. We just do it all the time.

Hi katie: It's interesting. I have to say that from the first moment I have always loved Frodo. I like his behaviour and I think he was a brave hobbit. And as you say, when we read a book more than once we can learn more about the personalities from the characters. ALVARO

Yes, it is so beautiful and God, isn't Tolkien creative? As you read and watched, did you find a shame Peter Jackson just took Glorfindel away like he is nothing? I think that was an unforgivable mistake, the elf was THE ELF, he's a Balrog Slayer for God's sake, hahaha, so sorry he wasn't on the movies. At the coronation, I think he's the big blonde behind Elrond, a model. Most male elves on the movies were super models, for girl's luck.

The Lord of the Rings is my most read book, I have read it 5 times or more over many years and each time I do I get a whole new take on the story. It is the story of life for sure. We are each on the road carrying our own loads and the choices that we make set our story.

Really dear? I'll try read more then. I didn't get it a lot the first time and didn't finish ROTK but I'm reading now and going to TTT. It begun when I just searched for 'Elrond', out of curiosity, he has a whole hudge story behind what we know from the movies and I begin to learn the movie is poor near the grandious world Tolkien created. At the same time I'm also reading The Silmarillion and The Children of Húrin, who knows? Maybe you'll love them too. Will you give a try? Christopher Lee, the Saruman, actually met Tolkien in real life and he is a hudge fan. Did you know he reads Lotr every year for decades? It's like his thing, he says he has to read once a year, cool huh?
